World War II vet Frank Pryor (Lloyd Bridges) returns to London from America after six years to look up an old flame, Pauline French (Moira Lister), now a successful actress.
As he and the other passengers deplane and walk across to the terminal, Frank pauses for a moment and asks the man beside him for a light. There's a gunshot and the man crumples to the ground, shot by a marksman with a high-powered rifle, an assassin with a limp.
It's not long before Frank Pryor is up to his neck in murderous intrigue.

Subject: Pretty Good
Former service man returns to England 6 years after the war(WW 2) to rekindle romance, BUT what has the lady been doing for the last 6 years? Excellent thriller with the "Sea Hunt" guy. Only downside was the kind of silly ending.
Subject: The End
I know I should give this movie another chance, but after falling asleep twice and daydreaming through the third viewing I have pretty much given up. I know and like to look for other actors but not sure of British people so much. I did stay awake for the end which would really spoil the entire movie anyway. I thought the ending was silly and like one other reviewer said, I wonder if they ran out of money.
Subject: More Noir
Very Noir with a touch of Deja Vu at the end. Lloyd Bridges is always a pleasure to watch. Back when movies were entertaining stories not photo opportunities for actor/models. Like good books, these films don't become dated and can be watched over and again.

Subject: Worst Ending Ever
Average B noir right the way through, yet still quite watchable. Then the end just kills it, leaving you in a moral vacum with no sense of resolution. A story arc that just wasn't, I cannot comprehend how people liked this ending, it refutes the paradigms of noir, but in a way which is not the least bit worth the trouble.
Subject: This was surprisingly good!
I'm not a Bridges fan necessarily only remember him from the Sea Hunt series of the late 50's early 60's..fun to him in something entirely different! I found the story engrossing drawing me in from the first! The unexpected ending I found abrupt...so 3 stars.
Subject: Standard B picture fare
This is a typical Briish B picture of the 50's featuring a second tier American actor in the lead role.
Entertaing only for spotting well known British actors of the time. The appearances of Lionel Blair and famous magician Robert Harbin add to its curiosity value.
Subject: The Limping Man
Yeah! Good one.. Better than average B movie - can't help wondering if they ran out of money and/or time, but the ending worked for me.
Was a bit perplexed by the escape into the TV viewing flat, but perhaps that was a normal event in its time.
Bridges' quiff had a fascination all of its own..
Subject: Impressively Directed
Impressively directed, well photographed little suspense film. Lloyd Bridges giving a solid performance. I quite enjoyed it, just stay away from the spoilers.
Subject: Ho Hum
This is a good second-rate thriller, though it's a cheat. There are several twists and turns and a surprise ending, which I didn't care for.
I downloaded the largest file available. QuickTime had some playback problems, but it played alright in VLC.
Subject: A Rather Good Plot
A good mystery with a good pace that keeps the viewer guessing. Nice punchline ending. Almost immediately I recognized the inspector (Alan Wheatley) as the Sheriff of Nottingham from the Robin Hood series broadcast in the late '50's. He's rather good in this one, along with Lloyd Bridges.
Subject: the Limping Man
Unusual but excellant story. Won't give away the ending. It's worth the view.
Subject: Good to see Lloyd Bridges again.
Loved the movie. Really loved the ending. Surprise!
